          Feb 14 2013: Ah, Damon. Much better! :) I hope you see now that you have a much stronger argument because it is supported by reference material. Expect a counterargument within the next few days.

          Feb 15 2013: Wow. You provided quite a few sources here Damon. Good job.

          HOWEVER, I have some concerns about where you are getting your information from. You have 11 sources that you have provided and I have taken the time to analyze each of the sources you have given me. I always find it a good idea to honor whatever information people give me. Are you aware, that of the 11 sources you gave me, 8 are DOT COM websites? I not sure if you aware that DOT COM, more often than not, indicates a "commercial entity". And "commercial entities", like most businesses, have their own SPECIAL INTERESTS. I find it interesting, that you suggest you're against the "propaganda and fluff the corporate media has perpetuated", yet, you yourself arguably site sources that could arguably be considered (though on perhaps a smaller scale) "propaganda and fluff the [commercial] media" portrays.

          And I would like to stop there, BUT,

          before I do, I want to point out, that of all the sources you site, none of them are what could arguably be "considered" one of the BEST SOURCES for learning about who you claim the "REAL" Colin Powell is. So that you'll have it next time, I'm going to send you a link.

          Feb 15 2013: Damon,

          What makes this argument arguably all the more entertaining, IS, all THIS, is coming from a "FREE THINKER, pesky artist type" that you claim to be trying to protect.

      Are you sure, YOU aren't the one trying to "cram" information "down" everyone else's "throats"?

          Feb 16 2013: Where within what I said (and please don't attempt to put words in my mouth, because that's what it appears you are trying to do) did I say that I (personally) didn't like dot com websites? FYI, one of my favorite websites on ALL the internet is a dot com site. Maybe you've heard of it before?

        Feb 20 2013: This answer refers to your above comment to Damon Ucraiui's link-list, which, as a 3rd level reply can not be commented directly.

        Quote: 'I not sure if you aware that DOT COM, more often than not, indicates a "commercial entity"'

        You are not very familiar with the Internet, are you? You can reserve any free COM domain for about a dollar a month to run just your family website, so what is your connection here as part of your 'analysis'? This domain is free for private use already, just in case you didn't notice...
